She gets out of the shower (no rest for the wicked we say), gets dressed and peeps through a crack in the doorway to the toilet. Yep. Sure enough, there he is hiding behind the toilet roll holder. Mum is in a fluster, wondering how she can get it out. Now for any mousey bloggers out there, you'd better not read any more cause it gets nasty.
Mum gets a mouse trap out, spreads some peanut paste on it and slides it into the toilet. The trouble is, how long can we wait for mousey to take the bait? Mum realises time is short, she has to work and drastic measures are needed.
When there's something strange,
in your neighbourhood,
who ya gonna call??
No, no, no, not the ghostbusters. It's Penny the Magnificant Mouser. Mum gets Penny, who as a 14 year old has quite the experience of catching mice, opens the toilet door, chucks her in and slams the door shut. She yells at sissy to open the door to outside, waits one minute and opens the door. Penny of course has poor mousey in her mouth, runs straight outside and well, end of story for mousey.
Anyhoo two minutes later, Penny races back inside, runs for the toilet and starts looking around for more. No luck we're happy to say. Just the one this time.
So, even though Penny is pretty old, she's still got it. Once our Dad saw her eat a mouse and the tail was still wriggling!! Ooops, sorry, hope no one was eating breakfast.
Did someone say mouse??
Mates, here's another video of me walking. Mum was trying to do some obedience but she's hopeless cause she hasn't done any for a while. You can see my leggie is still a bit wonky but the other day I actually sort of galloped at the oval and mum and dad were happy. I still have some trouble getting up at times, sometimes my leg just flips out from under me, but all in all, I'm doing pretty darn good.
Rory's walk (watch here)
Well mates, that's about it. Love the ones you're with.
No worries, and slobber, Rory, Stella, and Penny.
We have just heard that a dear friend, Daisy
has left for the Rainbow Bridge. Run fast, run free sweet girl.
